If you have a relatively recent version of Office (2007 or newer for
Windows, 2008(?) or so for Mac), you might try using Word's built-in
equation editor instead of MathType. I find it to be at least as good,
if not better, than MathType, and it has the advantage of using MathML,
which Mathematica understands natively. You can copy-as-MathML from
Mathematica directly into Word, and copy Word equations directly into
Mathematica. I haven't tried importing Word files into Mathematica, but
I would hope/expect it to suck up the MathML.
